We Wanted Endings


We wanted endings
that were
as neat
as the curve of the
ocean at
its rim. We wished
each other
well. We
knew things only
lovers knew
and we thought it
meant more
than it did. We wanted
drama without
sorrow. Like the
stories we read. Like in
the movies
where a first kiss
can mean
the picture is promptly over.
